    Great fresh, locally sourced cuisine. One of the few options in OC to really "go green". I'm not usually a fan of serving shark due to their global decline, but they do it with great respect & concern

    Go for the $5.99 lunch specials! But still order around the menu! Berry brûlée was heavenly.

    A gem with harbor views! Fresh, local, and creative dishes! We will be back! Worth the 5 min. drive from downtown! Loved the stuffed pepper with sausage and tempura avocado with caramel miso!

    Back again!! We love the Shark. My pickiest kid ask to go there for their kids fish sticks. Get the warm cookie and milk for a fun way to end a great meal. The crab cake was out of this world.

    The mixed seafood crock Isn't dainty (it requires fingers for shrimp and prawns), but it sure is tasty! Get it with a salad.

    Amazingly fresh food! Get the dog treats to go off of the dessert menu. Proceeds go to the local no kill shelter...and they are in the shape of a shark. My dog loved them.

    Also try the grilled swordfish with heirloom melon and basil pearl couscous (w/coconut and pineapple avocado purée). It is wonderful; like a fantastic meal and a savory rich dessert all on one plate.
